Tech Talk-7/22/15



Is the internet the next age of technology? Can we trust the systems to do what we want? Recent events, even events going back a number of years suggests that there are many risks in letting technology vitually take over, and be the lifeline or the lifeforce behind what we do every minute everyday.
Hackers are a large part of our society. Not only in the United states, but around the world. Ha! Even I wanted to become a hacker, back in the 90's, after seeing what is now one of my favorite movies "Hackers". Technology is everywhere. In our homes, our office, now our cars, even in our pockets.
I'm a podcaster. And been doing it for 6 years. And for a time I thought "

Sex and The Disbled.....The Disconnect

You know, I remember taking Sex Ed in Junior High. And as I look back now at my life and where I’ve gone, as well as my thought process, I think that I would stop and say “Wait, how does this help me?” I have long thought that there’s been a real disconnect between the “non-disabled” or “able-bodied” and the disabled, on many fronts. And that’s because of a lack of understanding, and the incorrect perception that we, the disabled, can’t do many things, such as, have sex.
One of the misconceptions is that we can’t. People think that we can’t, and usually that’s it. Case closed, end of story. So we are left to live our lives.
Here’s the thing, and I do this too. Don’t make assumptions. Don’t assume that people who are different than you, can’t do something, like have sex. Or that we don’t think about sex. Because believe me we do. Or is that just me?….Uhoh (lol) This stems partially from a lack of understanding, ignorance. And most people, the “able-bodied” are okay with their ignorance.
Well on behalf of all of us. Wake up! We’d like to have sex too. We’d like to be in a relationship with a man or woman who cares for us, and loves us for who we are on the outside, as well as on the inside. Now I’m not going to sit here and tell you that every person with a disability isn’t in a relationship, there are many that are, and I am genuinely happy for them, and yet secretly jealous at the same time. How do they do it, I’d like to know.
Let’s get back to sex for a moment. Being disabled can encompass many things. Some may not be able to walk(like me) some might have a speech impediment and not be able to speak well. Some, again like me, aren’t able to feel their genitalia. And to some that hurts. It’s extremely frustrating not being able to feel your penis. Even worse, not being able to cum or ejaculate. Or to ejaculate and not know unless you put your hand down there and feel that you have, essentially made a little mess. That’s reassuring that your doctors were wrong in telling you that ejaculation wasn’t possible. There’s a certain validation in that.
We are people too. We are part of society. Don’t shut us out based on something that you think you might know. But are probably dead wrong.

Life. And All That's With It

I'm 36 yrs old, and at times I don't feel like I have much to show for it. Sure, I'm a nice guy, a very nice guy, whatever. But I don't have a job, I'm collecting Social Security, which I am not thrilled about. And I have a case of what I call undiagnosed ADD up the wazoo. I'm not sure what I want to do as fair as a career, and my future consists of going day by day. 

I want more. I want something to happen. I want something to give. I don't know..I know that I give up on things way too quickly. Basically if I don't get what I want now, I won't strive for it. I don't know if I know what I want. No, I want to make some money, Ha like we all due. And the economy is improving, as much we don't want to admit it. I just want something to happen. I want that "Thing" to pop into my head and say "Hey, do this." 

Podcasting. Podcasting isn't a job for me, it isn't a profession, it's a hobby. And this hobby is starting to get harder to do. And then it's almost summer, so listeners, live listeners will probably be scares. Hell, Live listensers have been scares since around 2012. Make money? I probably could make money doing this. I could make money doing practically anything, but I'm too scared to take a chance. To take a chance on doing something that doesn't fall within the "status quo", what most of society sees as "normal". 

Normal, that's a joke. Normal, what is normal? Is normal going to work at 7, 8 o'clock, working 8 hours and coming home? I don't think it is anymore. Why can't everything be like The Brady Bunch, or Happy Days etc? Because that's what is deemed normal. But history has shown, is showing that we're changing. Our history, Our mindset, Our believes are changing. Even our perceptions of right and wrong, morality and decency. We are in an ever changing world. If we don't grow, we don't move on. 

If we hadn't have grown, do you think we would cars, cable, computers, The George Foreman Grill. (lol) Okay......
But seriously, if we hadn't succumb to change, where would we be? I would probably be in a wooden wheelchair.  lol. We'd all be riding covered wagons and cooking our food by the fire. 

I know that I need to get my shit in gear. I know that. But when? ....I'm not getting any younger. Yeah lol, that's another story for another time. (lol)

"The Daily Blush"

The Daily Blush- Rachel
I went to school with her in 2010. She's a beauty, no doubt. And I've told her this, in so many words, like I do with most if not all women. This girl's like model quality. Beautiful.

"The Daily Blush"




You know, fairly often I choose to highlight or more often call out an individual that I find is worthy of what I've called the "Damn!" Award. Highlighting a woman's beauty either inside or out or even both. And I accompany that with a picture. Well I thought that this would be a bit more subtle. Maybe. This idea was inspired by a lovely woman who will remain nameless, but I assure you, she, as well as her stunning beauty does exist. 

Good night dear readers.....Good night.

Tech Trends- The Samsung "Smartwatch"/ And Microsoft.........

I don't know how many of you follow tech trends. But has anyone seen this? It's the new Samsung Galaxy Gear SmartWatch. I saw this last week, because I'm fortunate to have one of the financial channels here at the hospital. 

I looked at this watch and I wasn't impressed. I more or less shrugged it off, because it just reminded me of those old video game playing watches of the 80's, that weren't all that popular, were they?....

And Apple-With all due respect to the genius and the brilliant mind of the late Steve Jobs, has "Microsoft" lost some or most of it's momentum and drive since the death of the innovator? The mastermind?

I Want To Be Happy

Today I realized that I'm not happy. I'm not owning my own life. I'm living carefully. Not wanting to piss anybody off, and conforming to what other people want from me. Example, I love my mom. But I'm 34 yrs old. I have to stop being concerned about what she wants or thinks. I have a trip to Vegas tentatively scheduled for January. I asked my best friend to go with me because I assume that my mom wouldn't want me to go alone, so I asked him. (Assumptions can often be wrong) I love the guy, but I don't want him to go. I often allow people to step over me, in conversations. Even though they have my best interests at heart. I want to travel. England, Romania, Scotland, Greece etc. But I'm allowing others to "step on me" and not allow me to go. To do the things that I want to do. I'm an adult. And I will keep on saying that until it gets through, to everyone.  

At home I feel "stepped on" as well. Not often, but it's noticeable. Don't think for one second that I don't know. I know a lot more than you think. I'm not happy. I want to be happy. I deserve to be happy. 

I want to be happy.
